Question
There is a future war on earth.  The establishment vs the bio engineers.  Treehouses are prominent as the new normal housing.  A metal munching insect is developed by the bio engineers to remove many weapons like tanks and guns. Intelligent species are also developed.  They discuss whether mankind should be exterminated but decide against as they keep doing interesting things.  A great book but I cannot remember the name.

Answer
Great book!  By Leo Frankowski, it is called Copernick's Rebellion (published in 1987)

Long out of print, you should have no problem finding it used on Amazon

Don't miss Leo Frankowski's most popular book The Cross-Time Engineer.  (still in print) There are other books in the series, but not as good as the first.
